Private Thomas DICKERSON

1st Battalion, Northamptonshire Regiment 14363

Thomas Dickerson was born in Northampton in the summer of 1889, the son of Charles Dickerson, a shoe worker, and his wife Mary Ann. When he left school Thomas followed his father into the shoe trade and became a boot clicker. In 1913 when he was 24 he married a Spratton girl, Mary Jane Manning aged 23. Mary was the daughter of Thomas and Sarah Manning who lived in Manor Road, Spratton, and she worked as a general servant in domestic service. After their marriage the couple lived in School Road, Spratton.

Thomas volunteered in September 1914 and was sent to France with the Northamptonshire Regiment on 10 February 1915. He took part in heavy fighting at Neuve Chapelle, St Eloi and Hill 60. He died a few months later at the Battle of Auber's Ridge, when so many of the Northamptonshire Regiment were killed. Thomas was awarded the 1915 Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. He is remembered at Le Touret Memorial (Panel 28-30), Pas-de-Calais, France.
